Learner-Ready Teachers More specifically, learner-ready teachers have deep knowledge of their content and how to teach it; they understand the differing needs of their students, hold them to high expectations, and personalize learning to ensure each learner is challenged; they care about, motivate, and actively engage students in learning; they collect, interpret and use student assessment data to monitor progress and adjust instruction; they systematically reflect, continuously improve, and collaboratively problem solve; and they demonstrate leadership and shared responsibility for the learning of all students. On day one of their careers, teachers should be able to model and develop in students the knowledge and skills they need to succeed today including the ability to think critically and creatively, to apply content to solving real world problems, to be literate across the curriculum, to collaborate and work in teams, and to take ownership of their own continuous learning.
School-Ready Principals With other stakeholders, they craft the school’s vision, mission, and strategic goals to focus on and support high levels of learning for all students and high expectations for all members of the school community. To help transform schools, they lead others in using performance outcomes and other data to strategically align people, time, funding, and school processes to continually improve student achievement and growth and to nurture and sustain a positive climate and safe school environment for all stakeholders. They work with others to develop, implement and refine processes to select, induct, support, evaluate, and retain quality personnel to serve in instructional and support roles. They nurture and support professional growth in others and appropriately share leadership responsibilities. Recognizing that schools are an integral part of the community, they lead and support outreach to students’ families and the wider community to respond to community needs and interests and to integrate community resources into the school. On day one on the job, principals should be able to blend their energy, knowledge, and professional skills to transform school learning environments in ways that ensure all students will graduate college and career ready.
State Levers for Change Licensure four recommendations Program Approval four recommendations Data Collection, Analysis, and Reporting two recommendations
Licensure Revise licensure standards to support the teaching and leading of more demanding content aligned to college- and career-readiness (CCR) Work together to influence the development of innovative licensure performance assessments that are aligned to CCR and include multiple measures of educators’ ability to perform, including evidence of student achievement and growth. Create multi-tiered licensure systems aligned to a coherent developmental continuum that reflects new performance expectations for educators and their implementation in the learning environment and to assessments that are linked to evidence of student achievement and growth. Work toward true licensure reciprocity across states
Program Approval Will hold preparation programs accountable by exercising the state’s authority to determine which programs should operate and establishing a clear and fair performance rating system to guide continuous improvement. Adopt and implement rigorous program approval standards including around highly selective admissions and exit criteria and high quality clinical practice Require alignment of content standards to PK-12 student standards for all areas in which candidates seek licensure. Provide feedback, data, support, and resources to preparation programs to assist them with continuous improvement.
Data Collection, Analysis, and Reporting Develop and support state-level governance structures to guide confidential and secure data collection, analysis, and reporting of PK- 20 data and how it informs educator preparation programs, including the need for unique educator identifiers, the mobility of data across state lines, links to non-traditional preparation providers, and the sharing of candidate data among organizations and across states. Use data collection, analysis and reporting of multiple measures for continuous improvement and accountability of preparation programs.
Maine Virginia 27 States Supporting the Recommendations
Next Steps: Launching a Network of States Ready for Implementation Applications for states to participate in a pilot to implement the recommendations in the task force were sent to state chiefs on May 8 Completed applications are due on June 28 Selection of pilots will be announced in mid-July First state convening will be August 27-29, Portland Oregon
How CCSSO will Support the Pilot State Network CCSSO will assist states in conducting a self-assessment and setting clear expectations for the outcomes of the work that will be agreed upon through a memorandum of agreement building consensus within and across preparation faculty and PK-12 educators on what a beginning teacher and principal should know and be able to do developing robust stakeholder involvement strategies
How CCSSO will Support the Pilot State Network CCSSO will work with pilot states collectively and individually to: redesign program approval policies redesign licensure systems create new data systems to support transformation of educator preparation and entry systems.
How CCSSO will Support the Pilot State Network CCSSO will also provide technical assistance to pilot states on strategies for implementing their state policies (e.g., guidelines, rules, regulations, statutes, etc.) for licensure, program approval, and data collection, analysis, and reporting advocate for and solicit input from pilot states to inform the reauthorization of the Higher Education Act and the ESEA, along with the Title II regulations for both the Higher Education Act and ESEA to support transformation of educator preparation and entry systems.
